  4. Hello Steffen, Great question, as there is some confusion. Simple answer; they are Exactly the Same There is NO difference between the X-30 Sled and the X-45 Sled Only when they are sold with an X-30 Arm or X-45 Arm does the name distinction apply
  5. Thank you for sharing this Ivan! Looks like a great option from New Seetec0
  6. Thanks for the posting. This is not recommended. Basically this creates a balancing issue. CG (Center of Gravity) is not correctly aligned Horizontal Axis over the Central Post, which is the 'rotational center of gravity'. If the plate is off to the side, the camera may very well end up off to the side as well. And, knowing it is the C100, I would recommend that you center the plate. Here's some great training videos, check them out and let me know if this helps. Volume 1: The Basic Volume 2: The Circle Up and Down Volume 3: Focal Length Volume 4: Slow Is Smooth, Smooth is King Volume 5: Focus on the Focus Volume 6: Balancing in 5 Minutes. …OK, say 2 Minutes Volume 7: Smooth Shooter and X-10
  7. Hi Jared, Sorry to hear about your difficulties! The Glidecam is designed as a 'two hand' operation, however, using "one hand' is just a important. The biggest problem comes with over-controlling with the guiding hand. This leads to instability. With the 2.5 to 3 second drop time, you'll want to adjust the horizontal balance as you've done, then once that is accomplished. Fly the Glideca, by walking in a straight line and do not use your guiding hand. Also, keep your 'wrist' solid/locked. Like you are sawing a piece of wood for example... Just walk straight. DONT walk slowly walk a around 2.5 MPH. Do this and you'll be headed in the right directions. Do this indoors (no wind) Let us know how it works out

  11. Zcarter32, Hopefully you able to get your balancing issues resolved. What is your drop time? We recommend a drop time of 2.5 to 3 seconds.... With one counterweight on each side, it sounds like your balance should be ok. how does your footage look?
  12. Andreas - just loosen the screws where there block attaches to the 'Elbow Hinge' that has the 'oval' machined in it. This will allow you to flip the block 180 degrees, you will also want to do this with the '2 pin' Block at the end of the Arm. There are 3 parts that need to be Flipped. #1 Flip the 2-hole Vest Block on the Vest #2 Flip the 2-pin block on the Arm End #3 Flip the Elbow Block. Doing these three things will allow you to operate your Glidecam in the Left-Handed position.
  13. The Glidecam XR-PRO, is the replacement for the Glidecam XR-2000, which is a basic model Glidecam - that did not include a Rapid Disconnect QR Plate, or the Front to Back Adjustment Knobs to position the cameras Front-to-Back / Side-to-Side. The HD-2000 is the hand-held stabilizer that includes these features. The Glidecam HD-2000, part of the HD-Series, is more versatile than the XR-PRO, due to these features. It is 100% USA Made - Great products See: *Note the newest member of the Glidecam HD-Series is the Glidecam HD-PRO.
  14. GLDGS will carry up 12 lbs The Glidecam X-20 Arm with X-30 Sled is a great combination!
  15. Yes, Santiago, the Glidecam Smooth Shooter Arm works in the X-10 Vest and the Glidecam X-10 will work in the Smooth Shooter Vest. Tom
  16. You're welcome - glad you found this information useful. Very nice trick, that I am sure will help someone out. Some shooters have used UV film on the monitor screen as well to assist, I haven't tride this, but some like it!
